is the democratic party the party of barack obama? when does that shift so it goes back to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in making a clear distinction between who they are and republicans. i want to reinforce democrats are not in as bad as a shape as republicans. the democrats really are not attached to obama like republicans were to reagan. when obama ran, he ran against the establishment of a party. he did not have a "democrat" on his bumper sticker. his identity was to be separate from washington. he did not campaign for democrats. his appeal is less transferable for democrats going forward than they did for a type of person who had been elected like bill clinton. >> that is what becomes a case in the democratic party? >> you guys did a great job. jimmy carter was president four years, but y
. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and

taxpayers. in 1990's president clinton worked with a republican congress to grow the economy and to restrain spending. in the 1990's, the balanced budget agreement actually resulted in a much faster balanced budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans in the 1990's, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream th

clinton administration that he needed to keep track of statistics about the president's movements and the number of times he played golf, the number of fund raisers he's had, how much money he'd raised. just about anything you can imagine. he does this by studying the logs every day. he remains there sometimes until 8:00 or 9:00 at night. he has the most complete records that exist. if the white house has a question about some number, they will go and see what his number is. he is very meticulous, and we all are very thankful that there is a source like mark muller. >> mike is joining us. >> good morning. thank you for taking my call. >> go ahead. caller: how much information becomes confused as news? i would like to hear your opinion about fox news. it is parent to most independent and open-minded people that not only are there stories -- their stories skewed so far to the right, the talking points, every issue is turned into a scandal, is turned into more reasons to disrespect the president. i appreciate the media challenging the white house on everything. but i'd like to get yo
covered the white house since the ford administration. he decided that the beginning of the clinton administration that he needed to keep track of the statistics about the president's movements and the number of times he played golf, the number of fund raisers he has had and how much money has raised, just about anything you can imagine. he does this by stating the logs every day. he remains there until 8 or 9 every night. he has the most complete record is that exists. if the white house has a question about a number, they will see what his number is. he is meticulous and we are thankful -- they will see what his number is. caller: thanks for taking my call. my question is how much opinion from the different main media sources becomes confused as news. i would like to hear your opinion about fox news. it is apparent to most independent and open minded people that not only are their stories skewed to the right, they are talking points and almost every issue is turned into a scandal, is turned into more reasons to disrespect the president. i appreciate the media challenging the white
democrats, but particularly at the clinton white house they were interested in getting copies of "the weekly standard." not just elected officials but consultants, strategists, people in government and so on read it. and then we have, we make sure that we have a great readership in the journalistic community in washington. i mean, about 400 copies on the weekend on sunday. they get one at home. so you have the political community, the journalistic community and the academic community. being at the new republic, i remember how, how widely read the new republic was in the academic community. of course, they did not like my stuff. i get letters saying why are you there? at the conservative academic community is a lot smaller, but we circulate among them, too. when you have that great readership, it helps. >> in the wikipedia site-- it talks that he possibly bought this for $1 million from rupert why did he not want to sale? i never have known why he wanted to sell. >> is that scary when he said he wants to get rid of this? was it all arranged in advance? >> we heard about it when it was announ
is expected of me? i will never forget a trip i took to -- right after clinton had seen president assad in geneva. prior to the trip, the prime minister conveyed to us what it was he wanted out of it. he produced what he wanted to see come out of it. i walked into the meeting feeling highly confident. we did what you asked. the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. if you go into these meetings in the expectations are very high, each reader is suddenly worried about what you are going to ask of them. when are low, you are in a better position to have a serious conversation and can explore the possibilities. maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about, what are the consequences of not getting anything done? with each side. if they are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible? where could there be some points of commonality we could build on? i expect you will have, there will end up being serious conversations in private that are much mo
on almost a daily basis. first, secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the reforms bat created a coherent syrian opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. we are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states oftentimes it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something militarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context, an international context,
for president clinton for the air force. there are many things you can say about jeh johnson, but from what i have seen and read and heard, hear other things i think are important to say. this is a man who understands and accepts the challenge and the responsibility of the fact that one man, one individual, one woman can make a difference. this is a person who believes that politicians and policy- makers can leave a mark, whether it is a mark for good or for ill. this is why we invited him here today. he reminds me of something that then attorney general robert kennedy said here at forum when he dedicated this building to the law school at lincoln center. he said, quoting justice jackson, the best attributes of a lawyer is courage. jeh johnson's thought on warfare are of particular interest today. we know something about what he thinks, but not a lot. here is what we do know. and i am quoting from the speech he gave at the oxford union several months ago. he told a group assembled there, war must be recorded as a finite, extraordinary and i natural state of affairs. war violates the natural o

did this and president johnson did this and in my judgment president clinton did this remarkably wem. and i think president obama is getting better. today he's meeting with 13 senators tonight at the jefferson hotel in washington. which maybe our conference helped move along. but it is tough -- i want to mention one other thing. it's tough because it's hard tore deal with the congress and sometimes it's unpless tonight deal with the congress. but there is no other choice, the president must engage. but one of the other issues i want to raise quickly is another factor, and charlie you talked about this a bit. in the days we were building this country, the space program and all these wonderful things it was easier to work together. let's look at the things they are dealing with today, sequester, how are we going to cut medicare, social security, how are we going to get the budget down. these are tough. these are politically difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is just cutting and reducing, it's not natural for people to enjoy doing the job under those circums
this as good as anybody, and my judgment president clinton did this remarkably well. i think president obama is getting better. today, he's meeting with 13 senators at the jefferson hotel in washington. maybe that will help our conference move along. but it is -- it is tough because -- i want to mention one other thing. it is tough because it is harder to deal with the congress and sometimes it is unpleasant to deal with the congress. but there is no other choice. the president must engage and it is a learning experience. one other issues i wanted to raise quickly. another factor and charlly talked about this. -- charlie talked about this. it was easier to work together. look at what they are dealing with, sequester, cutting, how do we cut medicare? when are we going to cut social security? how do we get the budget down? >> these what i call tough -- almost impossiblely difficult positions to take. in an environment where everything is reducing, cutting, it is not natch for people to enjoy doing the job under those circumstances. they don't feel positive to each other and friendly to reach o
in washington, republicans read it, some democrats, but particularly at the clinton white house they were interested in getting copies of the weekly standard. i don't think so. but the people in politics read it. particularly republicans. not just elected officials but consultants, strategist, people in government and so on read it. and then we have, we make sure that we have a great readership in the journalistic come-tin washington. i mean, about 400 copy on the weekend on sunday. they get one at home. and which if you get one on sunday, right, they have a lot better chance of reading it than they would they get it on the office on monday when they are flood with other things. so you have the political community, the journalist is tick comen in tin that he academic community. being at the new republic, i remember how, how widely read the new republic was in the academic community. of course, they did not like my stuff. i get letters saying why are you there? at the conservative academic community is a lot smaller, but we circulate among them, too. when you have that great readership, it
in the states. it took a couple times to get but newt gingrich finally got bill clinton to sign it into law. when ronald reagan was tnt president but the governor of california and tax reform happened in that state. when ronald reagan was the president and signed the law that slashed marginal tax breaks. real reform happened in the states. this was mentioned yesterday, in america there are 30 states that are republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] that's the good news. the good news is we have success and it is happening in our states and we can learn from that to tell our friends in washington how to move forward. in the state, to be successful we have to optimistic, relevant, and we have to be courageous. rest me talk to you about those three things. when it talks about being inspirational and optimistic is one thing that is interesting, when i first ran for gofer. when i say first, because who would have v thought i would be elected twice in the same term.

president bush, but 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. under president clinton and then president bush came in and did a big tax cut in 2001. put us out of balance for a long period of time. and during the period of time when the budget was imbalance the last four times out of 40 years, the revenue was coming in, was higher than it is in any year in the republican budget that's before us now. and what that tells you is that their budget approach is trying o seek balance on the backs of everybody else. by really cutting into those important investments that have helped power our company, by violating important commitments to seniors. and in the end, by raising taxes on middle-income people. why else would they not have joined democrats in sending policy statement to the ways and means committee that says when you go about eliminating tax preferences, don't hit middle-income taxpayers in the process. in fact, mr. chairman, if you look at the mortgage interest deduction, for example, mortgage interest deduction really helps middle-income people. homeowners. so in addition to saying, ways and m
into another recession. 7 million jobs created under bush. 22 million under clinton, right after we raised the taxes. that was in seven or eight years. what we are proposing in our budget -- let's put it this way, under the ryan budget, total receipts of government would be about 19% of gdp. under the reagan administration 23.5%.o under the caucus budget, receipts would go up to 21.8%. the lower range of the reagan administration, budget receipts. what inhibits job creation is not high taxes. history does not show that. what and him it -- what inhibits job creation is low demand. if people do not have money, they are not spending it to buy products. we had a housing bubble collapse in 2007 that eliminated eight dollars trillion in value. when it didtgages for closure as a result. we're still about two dollars trillion -- to join dollars below. people are not investing. ?hy not because of uncertainty. you are not going to hire somebody or invest in a new factory if nobody is going to buy a new product. if everybody is saving money because they do not have money, which is what has happened i
congress working with a democrat president, bill clinton, came together to put the plan that would in fact balance the budget and we did. for four years ran a budget surplus. the president has an opportunity during this critical debate to come forward and to help make this part of his legacy like it has become part of the clinton legacy. working together on behalf of the american people to solve what we know is a crisis in our country. we can't continue to spend money that we don't have. it's as simple as that. when you spent more money than you brought in for 50 of the last 60 years, no american family can do this, no american business can do this, no government can do this without bringing on a debt crisis that is sure to imperil the future of our kids and grandkids. vote for the ryan budget. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman's time has expired. who seeks time? mr. van hollen: i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman from maryland reserves his time. mr. ryan: i reserve the time since i have the right to close. we have no more speakers. the chair: the gentleman from

-door speech to donors, politicians and media, bill clinton spoke about gun owners. a lot of these people, all they have as their hunting and their fishing, or they have been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it, and we remember barack obama saying "it is not surprising they get bitter. they cling to guns or religion or cult the arrogance of their superiority reminds us that they do not give us right. we grant them power. they do not make us free. we are free already. as long as we have the second amendment, we always will be. we are america, and our politicians are only as powerful as we, the people, allow them to be. the nra ad -- philip rucker, how effective is the nra message right now? guest: a message like that is effective with the base of the nra and many americans that live in some of these dates -- it's dates -- states. you play and add like that in ,est virginia, north carolina north dakota, and it resonates. it is a message about the elite in washington and san francisco, which is a reference to nancy pelosi, the democratic leaders in the house, and it is really

it is clinton continued to rise. at some point we have to think differently about what we are doing with people. i have constituents have family and children. we all want to be protected from dangerous people. at some point, as a country, -- you have been running the fbi, you have had a few of this from a lot of different perspective. the committee is going to be wrestling with these issues over the next decade. the more people we lock up the more we put into prison, the greater share this budget is going to be taking up. -- ie same time these tried to protect our country from terrorism. they're going to be shrinking relative to its portion of the budget. the chairman has been the biggest supporter of the fbi that congress is ever seen. i have seen him in the private rooms when there are just four of us. the question because this, as a country as society deal have eighth thoughts about -- do you have any thoughts about making to we want to put in a prison cell and spend money to keep them locked up. we might have to think about a different approach in terms of seeking punishment for their trans

deficits for the first time in -- since the clinton administration. bringing deficits and revenues in line, mr. speaker. what we do is we prioritize those programs that are so important to so many americans. as you see from this chart, mr. speaker, social security spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the social security trust fund. medicare spending up each and every year in our budget while extending the life of the medicare trust fund. mr. speaker, if a budget is nothing else, it is a statement of our values and our priorities. and the republican study committee's value and priority is to end the passing of responsibilities from this generation to the next, to rb -- to be responsible for the bills we create today and paying for those priorities today. four short years, mr. speaker, we can be out of this conversation about debt and deficit and begin the conversation about freing the next generation from the $16.7 trillion that you and i and previous congresses have wracked up on their behalf. with that, i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the
clinton was president. finally he hit someone again and he came before my chord because that bumped up to being a felony. i understand. we took him to the board and released him, i often want to know, did you stick around long enough to watch them come across the border or did you drive away after you dropped them off? this is a huge problem. with each one of these federal felony convictions, it means we are paying for a prosecutor, law enforcement to get these people, then a prosecutor. we are paying for a defense attorney for them. we are paying for the officers for the prosecutor, the offices for the law enforcement, the judges, the appellate courts, and the number one conviction is for federal felony reentry after they have been deported? when i start thinking about that fact, it becomes pretty clear the best thing this administration could do for this country is secure the border so they do not have to keepre- catching the people who have already been deported. to heck with how much a wall costs or drone coverage. whatever it takes. this message should go up to the president. this
, it had been created by president clinton. the affordable care act will help provide the health coverage that is needed by millions of americans. i rise today to speak particularly about texas. some 24% of the population of texas are uninsured. and yet our state government has refused to accept the expanded medicaid. so today, mr. speaker, i make a public plea on behalf of the millions of texans who get up and work every day, who do not have health insurance, to be able to have a state government that is ignoring their plea, that is to have expanded medicaid to provide health insurance for working texans and poor texans. those that work as well below the minimum wage. it seems selfish that the concerns of those who lead state government are all political and not in any way concerned about the mothers and fathers and children who all the medical professionals from county governments to private practice have said expanded medicaid coverage, if taken by the state of texas, like florida, like ohio, will save lives. do it now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back

clinton and exploded our nation's debt. now after a decade of reckless financial management, the majority is proposing another budget that is unserious as it is extreme. take for example the field of scientific research. more than 50% of our economic growth since world war ii can be attributed to the development and adoption of new technologies. yet the budget proposed drastic cuts to research at the national institutes of health, the national science foundation, the national err naughtics and space administration, among others. as -- err naughtics and space ad-- arow naughtics and space -- a; eronautics and space administration as aamong others. you cannot turn on and off research like a faucet. under the majority's budget that valuable research will be ended and it's important -- and these important discoveries will probably not be made in the united states. the majority wants to impose such cuts on top of the cuts contained in the sequester, even though this effects of the sequester are just beginning to be felt. for example, in the coming weeks, airport control towers will begin to cl
been clinton. it was an executive order, if you look it up. i just looked at the extra taxes and the things being added on now. it is really threatening to the american public to hear all of this. this is a medium we have all learned how to use. we have all enjoyed it. host: we will leave it there, charles. is this a case of the law trying to catch up with the events -- advancements in technology? guest: i think it is. our understanding of how the law should apply to whatever we do online has changed as well. in 1986, we were not storing our most private documents in the cloud. you are not using texting medications as a substitute for making phone calls. now we do. we expect that we communicate with someone through e-mail, there is a certain level of privacy attached to those communications. be a little bit ahead of congress. the court -- caller may be a little bit ahead of congress. the court of appeals set individuals that a reasonable expectation of privacy when they used an e-mail to communicate. that expectation does not go away when the e-mail reaches a certain age. we
be deported, was constantly reported to the federal board. this was when bill clinton was president. finally he hit someone again and he came before my chord because that bumped up to being a felony. i understand. we took him to the board and released him, i often want to know, did you stick around long enough to watch them come the border or did you drive away after you dropped them off? this is a huge problem. with each one of these federal felony convictions, it means we are paying for a prosecutor, law enforcement to get these people, then a prosecutor. we are paying for a defense attorney for them. we are paying for the officers for the prosecutor, the offices for the law enforcement, the judges, the appellate courts, and the number one conviction is for federal felony reentry after they have been deported? when i start thinking about that fact, it becomes pretty clear the best thing this administration could do for this country is secure the border so they do not have to keepre-catching the people who have already been deported. to heck with how much a wall costs or drone coverage. wha
